Roller Derby - Announcers

Skaters, NSOs, Refs all help make the game happen but the announcers and the fans make it come alive. Whipping up the crowd to support either team creates excitment at any bout especially if the scores are close or the game goes in to an overtime jam. They also help the uninitiated understand what is going on, whether they are announcing 'live' or on the video feed that many larger tournaments put on to accomodate spectators that are unable to travel, especially as the sport is becoming more global.
